We are very pleased to announce the opening of our Children’s Room pop-up shop at 326 George St (just ‘popposite’ Yaks ‘n’Yetis). Here you will find all the fabulous books, quirky and interesting toys, gorgeous giftwrap, lovely cards and specialised bookseller services you find at the original Children’s Room at the University Book Shop Otago at 378 Great King St. We are certain it will be very popular.
When we expanded and re-designed our children’s section in our iconic Great King St shop, as part of our commitment to creating life-long readers, we were somewhat startled to have somebody tell us “I don’t know why you are bothering, you’ll be closed in a year!”. Poppycock, we cried! so a year later, it is very exciting, in fact it is poptastic, to invite you all to celebrate opening another bookshop and having more bookshopping poptions.
As you can tell we are all just popping with excitement – why not pop-in to the pop-up (open from 9.30am and say hi, browse the books, noodle with the toys, find just the right gift and choose a card…
9.30am-5.30pm on Monday to Friday
